Transport and Infrastructural Development Minister Joel Biggie Matiza appointed a new board for the Zimbabwe National Road Administration (ZINARA).
The board will be chaired by Engineer Michael Madanha. Madanha served as Deputy Minister of Transport and Infrastructural Development in 2013. The new board was appointed following the dissolution of the Wilfred Ramwi-led board last year, which was accused of covering up corruption at the parastatal. Other members of the new board led by Madanha are Naason Mudzara, Lizwe Fungai Bhunu, Runyararo Jambo, Malcom Seremwe, Asher Emmerson and Christopher Shumba.
The primary task of the board, according to Minister Matiza, is to ensure that the management of Zinara is properly structured. It is also expected to implement recommendations of the Grant Thornton audit report which unearthed serious corruption at the parastatal.
